Karan Johar is so desperate about ADHM’s release in Maharashtra that he isn’t paying heed even to SRK. We hear after the Lisbon trip, SRK asked Karan to stay low but KJo just did not listen. A source tells us that he is now resorting to arm twisting tactics – Yikes!
We have been informed that Karan has decided to blackmail cinema halls (single screen and multiplexes) into releasing ADHM in Maharashtra. Dharma Productions owns the rights to Baahubali 2 and Karan is now telling cinema hall owners that he will not sell the rights of the blockbuster movie if they do not screen ADHM. Wow, this mess is only getting dirtier by the day. He says that he will sell the rights to Baahubali 2 to cinema halls that show ADHM and this has clearly upset cinema hall owners all across Maharashtra.
A little keeda tells us that cinema hall owners in Mumbai are planning to approach theatre owners across the country for help. If theatre owners across the country unite, KJo’s ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ will not hit cinema halls in India which spells doom for Dharma Productions.
We just hope that Karan takes the right steps without enraging everyone!
